nurbsSelect([borderSelection=boolean], [bottomBorder=boolean], [growSelection=int], [leftBorder=boolean], [rightBorder=boolean], [shrinkSelection=int], [topBorder=boolean])
Note: Strings representing object names and arguments must be separated by commas. This is not depicted in the synopsis.
nurbsSelect is NOT undoable, NOT queryable, and NOT editable.
Performs selection operations on NURBS objects.
If any of the border flags is set, then the appropriate borders are
selected. Otherwise the current CV selection is used, or all CVs if
the surfaces is selected as an object.
The growSelection, shrinkSelection, borderSelection flags are then applied
in that order.
In practice, it is recommended to use one flag at a time, except for
the border flags.
